FOLGORE - 'Per Sempre Tempesta' cassette review



FOLGORE - 'Per Sempre Tempesta' cassette review


As soon as the first track from this six song tape from Italy's (I think) FOLGORE dropped in, I thought of LOMA PRIETA. So yeah, they play pretty awesome melodic screamo / post-hardcore that is aggressively and distortedly vocalled throughout (save for some ENVY-esque spoken word), and crashes through abrasive fuzzy riffs and the odd bit of finger tapping, backed by chaotic drumming, and interspersed with pretty, picked, melodic sections. I especially dig the second track 'Likho', but this has a consistently similar song throughout (save for the more brooding, largely slower penultimate track 'Mediocrita'), so if you like stuff like LOMA, RAIEN, or LA QUIETE, then this should be worth a listen.
